* Genesis 28:3 – “May God almighty bless you!”

4.  We raise up the ministry of the Gospel – especially: … September’s “Mission of the Month” – Brady Johnson’s Eagle Scout project, building a front deck ramp at the home of Larry & Velma Bass – donations ($1700 to date) will help with the cost of supplies (now set at $2500);  … our congregational ministries, that the Lord would use them (and us) to bring people to know His saving grace.

* Romans 1:16 – “The gospel … is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.”

5.   We pray for our Nation: … in light of the political and racial strife and violence;  … the far-reaching effect of the coronavirus pandemic on individuals, families, schools, businesses and churches;  … those deployed in our Armed Forces: John Crowley & Willie Williams, III (Afghanistan); Wilson Gauf (Bahrain); Shelby Long (Iraq); Chris Name (Kuwait); & Steven Shelton (Korea).  Evan Abramson (who has been in the Middle East), is due to return home early next month – we rejoice in his safe deployment.
